If the thing did happen, then man must be prepared to accept notions of the cosmos, and of his own place within the seething vortex of time, whose merest mention is paralyzing.
–H.P. Lovecraft, The Shadow out of Time
Prepare to be Touched by the Abyss! The climactic final Asylum Pack from the Revelations cycle for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game is now available at retailers everywhere and online from our webstore!
For roughly half a year, the characters and world of Call of Cthulhu have been haunted by the horrifying Revelations discovered through dreams and within Tomes of darkest origin and unfathomable power. Now these maddening insights have forced the game’s factions to take drastic action.
Touched by the Abyss finds each of the game’s eight factions flinging themselves desperately toward the advancement of their secret causes. Six factions each implement a new conspiracy, with challenges and rewards that both play to the host faction’s strengths. Meanwhile, new characters arrive to contend these stories (and others), including new Government agents, Serpents, Servitors, and Criminals. With their service, and the forbidden knowledge gained by four new translations of the Necronomicon, the struggles of Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game rise to a frenzied, feverish pitch!
The Worldwide Underground
The streets of Saint Petersburg have never been a forgiving place, but during Russia's civil war, roaming soldiers and armed thugs made the streets even more dangerous. Those who grew up living on those streets had no choice but to grow up fast and grow up hard.
The Syndicate’s Street Tough (Touched by the Abyss, 116) is one such character. He combines two of Syndicate’s signature mechanics in a single card, able to both raise his skill and lower that of an opposing character. When working with the Triad’s Mr. David Pan (Curse of the Jade Emperor, 43), or while working The Night Job (Touched by the Abyss, 118) along with a criminal in possession of the hit list contained in O’Bannion’s Ledger (Words of Power, 35) he becomes a major threat to those who would oppose him and to anyone who would stand against this global crime organization’s greater plan.
You can find this intimidating Street Tough and The Night Job among the cards from Touched by the Abyss, along with a host of other terrifying secrets spawned from the pages of the Necronomicon.
